New Structures in Algebraic Geometry and their Symplectic Interpretations
06 Aug 2019 - 09 Aug 2019 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The beautiful utility of any duality is that it allows for the surprisingly meaningful flow of ideas between two disparate areas. Indeed, through Homological Mirror Symmetry, symplectic considerations have yielded concrete results in the theory of derived categories of coherent sheaves on algebraic varieties. These results are unexpected: the apparent flexibility of symplectic topology contrasts with the rigidity found in solutions of polynomial equations. That difference has been resolved by the surprising abundance found in the group of autoequivalences of the derived category. One particularly successful example was the paper of Seidel and Thomas on spherical twists, which inspired many successors and enjoyed further expansions.

Workshop on New Geometry of Quantum Dynamics
12 Aug 2019 - 16 Aug 2019 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The mathematical scope of the program is within noncommutative geometry, quantum groups, graph C*- algebras, KK-theory, index pairing, C*-dynamical systems and crossed products, Dirac operators, spectral triples, curvature, and quantum Gromov-Hausdorff distance. There are a number unifying principles which establish connections among the proposed topics of the meeting. For example, dynamical systems link together graph C*-algebras and noncommutative metric geometry. We aim to construct quantum metric geometries of crossed products and graph algebras relating the Lipschitz norm and Dirac-operator approaches. This links the metric and spectral features of noncommutative geometry. A key research focus of the proposed activities is to make precise the impact of metric and spectral noncommutative geometry on noncommutative topology. Graph C*-algebras are an abundant source of examples which test the bridges between the topics of the proposed conference.

19w5046 — Groups and Geometries
25 Aug 2019 - 30 Aug 2019 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The Banff International Research Station will host the "Groups and Geometries" workshop in Banff from August 25, 2019 to August 30, 2019.

Group theory is an abstract subject, but it is also the mathematical way to investigate symmetry. Thus many problems from various areas of mathematics which involve some sort of symmetry are susceptible to the application of group theory. In this proposal we plan to cover three main areas: the abstract structure of finite groups; some geometrical aspects of group theory; and several recent applications of group theory to other areas of mathematics.

Workshop on Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics
18 Nov 2019 - 22 Nov 2019 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
With an eye towards the use and need for higher structures, this workshop will bring together experts in algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, and theoretical physics to focus on common areas interacting with HMS. Potential topics are Bershadsky--Cecotti--Ooguri--Vafa theory, shifted symplectic structures, higher Donaldson-Thomas invariants, and symplectic duality, in relation to HMS.

Winter Graduate School in Toric Topology
13 Jan 2020 - 17 Jan 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two intensive mini-courses will be given over one week by experts on polyhedral products and toric topology. These are designed to give graduate students and early career researchers in nearby fields a better understanding of each subject by presenting multiple viewpoints from different lecturers, thus enabling the participants to better engage in the subsequent workshops and seminars.

Workshop on Torus Actions in Topology
23 Mar 2020 - 27 Mar 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
The workshop will introduce and explore new themes of research in toric topology. It will provide an opportunity for interaction between people who work on different aspects of torus actions, such as topological, combinatorial, symplectic and algebro-geometric.

Spring Graduate School on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
20 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two mini-courses will be given by experts in Geometric Group Theory. These are designed to give graduate students and early career researchers a research level perspective on how and why Polyhedral Products appear in Geometric Group Theory, thereby enabling the participants to engage fully in the workshop that immediately follows.

Workshop on Polyhedral Products in Geometric Group Theory
25 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Montreal, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute
Abstract:
Two special cases of the polyhedral product construction have been immensely influential in geometric group theory, giving rise to at least three major families of examples of groups parametrized by flag simplicial complexes: right-angled Coxeter groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); right-angled Artin groups associated with the polyhedral product for pairs (,*); and Bestvina-Brady groups associated with a covering space of the polyhedral product for pairs (,*). However, the interaction between toric topology and geometric group theory is largely unexplored. The purpose of this workshop is to significantly increase synergies between the two groups and establish a framework for approaching common problems and methods in a more global context.
